Shooting frontline women

A NEW photographic exhibition, 'Women in the British Army', provides a rare insight into the lives of women serving on the frontline.

In May 2012 photojournalist Alison Baskerville was in an embedded position with the British Armed Forces in Afghanistan.

She was given extraordinary access to the Female Engagement Officers -- soldiers like Captain Anna Crossley who join patrols to help gain access into local compounds.

These officers work to build special ties with Afghan women.

She was also granted access to the women at the Afghan National Army's training centre in Kabul.

The exhibition of Ms Baskerville's work opens tomorrow in London.
